Another salvage to track car build - 2013 FR-S this time

Picked up this car about a month ago or so. It's a Firestorm 2013 FR-S with just under 28,000 miles on the chassis. It appears that it went in for the valve spring recall and the Toyota techs screwed up the job and the engine died less than 200 miles after their repair. It was likely then totalled out by their shop insurance and then some hail decided to bang into it while it was likely already at the Copart lot waiting to be sold.

The car was slightly hit before on the left front fender which was replaced with a shitty aftermarket fender and the body shop used the wrong clips which made it a joy to get the bumper back off (why @Opie and I can do a better job fixing these than professional body shops is anyone's guess....).

Oh yeah I just changed DNS for the domain name I'm using for hosting the pics so if they don't show up, sorry.. they should once DNS propagates out.

Anyways, here's a few pics of the car from the auction. It was at the Lincoln, NE Copart facility:





I was out of town when it arrived but thankfully @Opie was in town to receive it and he noted a couple minor annoyances right away (like someone cutting the fuel pump wiring.. wtf).

Additionally the Toyota techs that caused this cars destruction also were lazy jackknobs and didn't bother putting most of the spare parts, DI injectors, bolts, nuts, etc in the car/trunk. Probably kept them as spares. That will suck later in probably a couple hundred bucks of random stupid parts purchases.

Opie (and other buddy - the one we built the DGM track car for) left the car at my house so this was basically what I was greeted with upon returning home:


About a week after getting the car I went over to Orlando and picked up a replacement engine. This one was a 2015 engine out of a wrecked FR-S. It's also from an automatic so some swapping of parts has to be done.



And the engine dropped off at the shop...



That's it for part 1.. next post will be an updated list of the plan/parts that are planned and what's been done...

For part 2 of the rebuild, go to this post in the Opie and Dave-ROR rebuilds thread: https://www.ft86club.com/forums/show...6&postcount=68

Now for Part 3... sorry for the general lack of pics we had limited time so we focused on working on the car and drinking some adult cold snacks..

Towed it over to the shop this morning:


And once there we proceeding to bolt up the new flywheel.. and the clutch/pp but no pic of that...


From there we installed the engine (and took it out after halfway installing it to replace the throwout bearing we initially forgot), bolted up the trans, found more missing bits, etc... eventually I installed the new Koyo radiator and the Jackson Racing oil cooler:


From there I got the AC delete installed and the intake system with the new Perrin intake tube so I could rip out what remained of the sound tube crap:


Tomorrow will probably be part 4.. hopefully I'll take more pics. Goal for tomorrow is to install the extended studs, finish up some wiring (lots of grounds...), maybe get the fuel lines sorted (Opie forgot his fuel line tools but not sure if he's planning on working on it tomorrow), connect the header up since Opie did source me some exhaust gaskets.. still tempted to just buy a header from @CSG Mike though.. although with some other bits to more securely mount the driveline, maybe install the IRP shifter (or not). Or maybe just drink and cut the grass at the house. Who knows.

Eventually I'll be moving the Eibach R2s over from the BRZ to the FRS, the @JRitt sourced Essex AP Racing Sprint brake kit, the adjustable rear LCAs, etc... then I should sell the silver BRZ since it won't really serve a purpose anymore at that point.

Part 4:
Finished installing the ARP wheel studs. Way back in 2012 or 2013 I did a DIY on installing the wheel studs with a press. This time I took pics of the other way of doing so (hammer and lug stud installer). Pics below. One big difference between my 2013 BRZ and this car.. lots of corrosion. Ugh.

Will came over and finished up the fuel lines and some ground wire installs etc.

We both noticed another annoying thing.. the shop I got the motor from (assumption that it was them) drilled a hole in the oil pan I suppose to drain fluids and then shoved a rubber grommet in the hole... so instead of bolting up the header we dropped the header so we could drop the pan and swap it with the pan that came with the car. Upon removing that pan it became obvious that the toyota techs in Nebraska badly damaged that pain removing it previously. So a new OEM pan is on the way. YAY!

That is accelerating the exhaust upgrades though since we already dropped the OEM header.

Otherwise I believe that all electrical is now connected so once a new pan is on it, and an exhaust of some sort, we'll see if it runs or if the new motor has issues also (or the car has other issues).

Some pics..

Left a mess in the shop the night before.. and the past months before that. Yeah need to clean it up soon.


FR wheel, caliper and rotor removed.. and hammering out the OEM studs


Cleaning the hub surface before installing the new studs


One important step.. when cleaning the hub make sure you protect your adult beverage. The contamination of rust and metal is even worse than this terrible french excuse for beer. And dust shields removed.. because real brakes coming soon.


Here's the lug stud installation tool I used, Lisle part number 22800


Install the studs loosely into the holes and then I used the rotor to protect the face of the hub. I used a lugnut to hold the rotor on tightly against the hub (you can use a loose stud for that, just tighten until it's hand tight/snug), then used the tool and another cheap lugnut for the actual install.


One done...


And hours later.. all are done. That drivers rear was a real PITA. Took the air hammer to get the stupid hub/bearing out after disassembling the drum. Will put the drum brake back together as I don't have patience for that crap (and the drums really ARE the worst brake design ever!)


Will be out of town next weekend so next update might not be for a bit unless Will gets bored and goes to the shop to work on it.

You didn't specify which SWEET lug nuts those are. Muteki?!
Awesome build, I hope to be able to rescue and convert abandoned FRS/BRZ in the future.

We'll see how much time I have this weekend...but I plan on stopping by to finish up the oil pan and drink some of the shop beverages at some point...

Did you decide to get the oil pan baffle? And should I try and start it without any exhaust on it if I finish the pan? LOL

I'll post some of my pics from last weekend later
